It doesn’t get anymore Kosher Treif than this! Tonight I made myself a Facon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich. That’s right. I said it … and it was so delicious!
I’ve been craving a BLT for months and when my husband discovered Jack’s Gourmet Kosher Facon at our local Tom Thumb grocery store, I knew I was in business. The Facon is pricey for sure at around $8 for a small package but some times a girl just needs to splurge a little to get her favorite Treif treat.
Facon is a little tricky to cook because, unlike real bacon, Facon broke apart very easily when I tried to remove it from the package. Instead of looking like bacon, it just looked like thin strips and pieces of meat cooking in the skillet, but the taste totally made up for the stringy consistency.
I fried the facon on medium high heat for about 8 minutes, just until it was crispy and drained it on a paper towel to get rid of some of the grease. Next, I toasted 2 slices of bread, covered both sides with mayo, added lettuce, tomatoes and … FACON … and ate the yummy goodness.
The edges of one piece of the Facon were very tough, probably because I cooked it too long so I’ll have to play around with he cooking time but hey, any bacon-like substitute is better than no bacon-like food at all.
I ate every bite and was relieved when my daughter said no to my offer to share. Get thyself to the store today and buy yourself some of Jack’s Gourmet Facon. Then let me know how you koshered-up your treif!
